The last few years, Coys of Kensington puts up a tent at the Classic Days Schloss Dyck. And nothing else is the case this year. The last few years, there was only slow activity when it comes to Porsches being auctioned at Schloss Dyck. However things have changed. 75 cars will come on the block to be auctioned. No less than 17 of them are Porsches. Mainly the Porsche 356 is well represented with 6 of them, so is the Porsche 911 of which 7 will be hammered.
For us, there are 3 real eye catchers among the Porsche 911s in the Coys Auction. First there is the 1965 Porsche 911 2.0. As a direct succesor the the Ur Porsche 901, the short wheel 1965 Porsche 911 is a car in high demand in collector circles. This particular car was delivered in September 1965 to the Porsche dealer in Hamburg, Peter-Max Müller. The car is in excellent condition after a recent huge restoration. Next comes the 1973 Porsche 911 2.7 Carrera RS. The matching numbers Porsche 911 2.7 RS, a M472 Touring model, was delivered new via the French importer Sonauto to its first owner in January of 1973.
The car has taken part over the years in several regularity rallies such as the Coupe des Alpes, Maroc Classis, and the Tour de Auto. 3rd in the row is an eye-catcher because it is a tribute to the ultra-rare Porsche 993 GT2 Evo. The Porsche 911 GT2 Evo is an ultra rare track version of the 993, with only 11 homologation editions for road use built in 1996. With a genuine GT2 Evo worth €1m, this wonderful tribute is a significant way to enjoy the racing thrill of a GT2 Evolution.
The 1952 Porsche 356 pre A Coupe was first shipped to the USA but returned to Germany after approximately 10 years. In current ownership this Porsche 356 has been extensively restored to a high standard. Since the completion of the restoration, the car only drove only a handful of kilometres. The black 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet with a forest green leather interior, is equipped with the more powerful 1500cc motor. A marque specialist recently restored the car to huge levels of detail and care. Therefore this car is presented in factory-fresh condition.
The Porsche 356 Continental is only produced in 1955. The American importer Max Hoffman convinced Porsche to use names for a car, rather than just a number. Names were more common on the American market. However, Ford Motor Company sued Porsche for using the name ‘Continental’ as that reffered to their own Lincoln Continental. Therefor only just over 220 Porsche 356 Continentals were produced. This makes the car highly collectible. This 1955 Porsche 356 Continental Cabriolet runs on the more powerful 1500cc motor. The car has just benefitted from an exhaustive restoration to an exceptional standard. The car is finished in azure blue with a beige leather interior
Just as always, we highly recommend to perform a PPI on any car you are bidding on.
